Main Streets of Australia Week

Main Streets of Australia Week

With more than 2 million small businesses in Australia, small businesses do an enormous amount for the community.

We need to support them and our main streets to ensure their survival, so they can continue to:

• provide a huge number of jobs to those that rely on local or flexible work;
• create local spending;
• support local causes and charities, as well as sporting groups and schools;
• provide a place for the elderly or vulnerable to find their fit in the community;
• build connection and provide safe space; and
• allow a huge number of families to stay financially afloat.

Main Streets of Australia Week is on 15-21 May 2023


In 2023, we’re hosting our second year of Main Streets of Australia Week, a national campaign celebrating all that main streets and town centres provide to the community.

The message will be impossible to ignore as these streets, and the businesses within them, will all be sharing this message at the same time; from May 15 – May 21 aka Main Streets of Australia Week.

The best part of this event is that it is accessible to all streets and town centres, no matter the size or budget.

We hope you join us in celebrating and raising awareness of our main streets and town centres. We’re also hosting the Mainstreet Australia Awards within the week, on Fri, May 19. Even more reasons to celebrate!

Main Streets of Australia Week is proudly sponsored by Dynamite Printing and Assemblo
